Nutella Hot Chocolate

Nutella hot chocolate is a delicious way to warm up this winter. It’s thick, chocolatey, and a hint of hazelnut.

With Christmas around the corner and the chilly weather we’ve been experiencing, I’ve been craving hot chocolate constantly.

I don’t drink as much hot chocolate as much as I’d like to. Somehow, drinking it solo isn’t as fun, so I usually wait until I’m home with my family. It’s always a Christmas tradition and we even had special mugs just for the occassion, though my mom unfortunately misplaced them a few years ago.

My favorite hot chocolate is Nutella hot chocolate. Because duh, it’s Nutella. I added toasted marshmallows which I heated up with my mini kitchen torch. You can drizzle with more melted Nutella too.

If you love Nutella like me, you should definitely try it out. It’s easy to make and the rich chocolate hazelnut spread makes traditional hot chocolate even better.
